Hi Daniel

 

Welcome to the forum. Nice and clean image. I still think that the comments that I left on The SU forum are valid.

Nice! very realistic looking..you rendered it in a large size..how long did it cook for? Did you make the cabinet doors yourself or did they come from a 3D source?

Since it is an existing condition, the rendering is not attractive at all. But I love all the details you've put into the rendering. It looks really rich. After you worked out the design, post it again. I believe that one will rocks.

Thanks guys

 

Sepa, I will try out your comments on the model of the renovation.  This is the "before" image and don't want to spend too much time on it.

 

David, the only things that aren't my own models are the window blinds, sink, blender, coffeemaker, microwave, toaster, and roll of paper towels.  The refrigerator, stove, cabinets, light fixtures, even the wall outlets are modeled on the existing items.

artchung, you are correct in that it isn't attractive.   Thats why I'm remdeling (on the computer at least).  The remodel will be economical, however.  Will post as son as it is done.

 

BTW, that rendering took almost 4 days to "cook".

4 days!!!!!!......this would potentially give TBD some restless times if not a heart attack.

Usually 'cook time' means from the time you hit render till the time it stops and not including any design time or modeling time or post processing time. Was that the case?

4 days is a bit of an exageration.  My very first rendering was generated at 1024x768 and took 27 hours.  This one (2048x1536) 81 hours.  and yes that is from the time I pressed render until it was finished.

that's why I opt for artlantis r for large resolution rendering. Although artlantis r not as good as others and the quality is about 60 to 70%, but it is the fastest GI/Radiocity renderer in the market

I am not convinced either, Artlantis vs Vue infinite using a Max created scene, set to medium GI took 25% longer and was definately inferior to the naked eye., and Podium vs Vue  (podium was set to max quality as it does not have GI) was about 5% faster and quality was like Artlantis.

Part of the problem with the time may be that I have only 1GB of ram, which i am told is kinda low.  That, combined with the large rendering size and the quality settings set at their highest, account for the 4 day cook time.  I've done a few smaller renderings (800x600) to test out some of Sepo's suggestions on the lighting, and they took less than 24 hours.

Sepo,

 

Unfortunately everything is at home, and I am at work.  Will try to remeber to post them tonight.  Howwever, so far not much luck.  I've tried a large LEM set at 100% set behind the camera, and adjusted the omni lights in the ceiling fixtures to a setting of 1 - that produced too much light.  Then I eliminated the omni lights and set the glass shades to a LEM setting of 10 - the light was better, but htere is an unnatural shadow behind the ceiling fixtures. 

 

Right now I am generating another rendering with the large LEM set at 50%.  Thanks for your comments.

No problem mate. You should never crank up lighting 100% because it will burn and rendertimes are huge. It is always better to have less light as you can tosh it and bring details out.
